Hi all,
great news, dnsv7 is now installed on my machine. It has been difficult to
figure out how to have "wineboot" working; here how I had to proceed:
when the install program told me I had to reboot, I first did a simple
"wineboot", either as user or root, no effect. Then I tried in a wine
menu (in xfce) to click on "KILL all wine processes" and then wineboot, it
doesn't work either. 
Then here's what worked:
As root, "ps ax | grep wine", and then looking at pid numbers, kill all of
the /usr/bin/wine-preloader processes (there were four or five of them),
one after the other. Then as user, wineboot worked. Wonder if this is

Never mind, now the issue is to have sound; the volume check does not
complete as for now. Strangely, as I have the french version, the text I'm
supposed to read for volume check is in english?? I'll check messages from
june on this,
